I was up until almost midnight grading labs, and I have forty-odd grant proposals to read today, so I'm going to be unplugging from the Internet and working on, well, work. For entertainment while I'm paying for my procrastination, here's another two-word lyrics quiz. These two-word phrases each uniquely identify a pop song (I hope). If you know the song from the phrase, leave the answer in the commnets, and add a two-word phrase of your own for other people to guess.
The first three are left over from the last round:
- up drivel
- town predicts
- wicked strict
- unlovable hand
- NYPD choir
- stained-glass curtain
- Pizza Hut
- mommy butted
- Bedouin fires
- drummer's hair
- restaurant raids
- fifty-amp fuse
- favorite bakery
- separation condemnation
- screaming Argonauts
- Indiana boys
- so 1990
Some of these are kind of obscure, but others are, I hope, fairly obvious. Good luck!
5, "NYPD choir", is from "Fairytale of New York".
MY replacement phrase is "vast hegemony"
15. "screaming Argonauts" is from "Birdhouse in Your Soul" by They Might Be Giants.
I'll say "bruised silence" as mine.
12. "fifty-amp fuse" is from "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Rolling Stones.
I'll go with "leather on."
16. "Indiana boys" is from "Last Dance With Mary Jane" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. No replacement.
#6: "That stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind"--Billy Joel, "Only the Good Die Young".
My replacement: "every planet"
8 "Not when he looked so fierce his mommy butted in" is from The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill - The Beatles
replacement: conspiracies unwind
17. "You're so 1990, and it's 1994. Leave this world behind me, 'cause you don't want me anymore"
Shoebox - Barenaked Ladies
9. Beautiful Day - U2
10 is Pavement, "Cut Your Hair".
Replacement: "whispered time".
It's probably not what you had in mind, but since I've had Das Rascal's song "Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell" stuck in my head for the last hour, I'll toss that one out for number seven.
#4 - "No Children" by Mountain Goats
